    Questions about how to get around in Philadelphia

    Take the R5 Regional Rail line from Ambler or Ft. Washington (about 5-10 min from Norristown) into Suburban Station. The areas you want to visit will be located close to that station and are walkable. Have fun!

    Anyone in or near Allentown, PA who can do a show for me?

    A woman who's kids used to go to the same preschool as mine asked if I'd do a show for her, but she has moved to Allentown and it's a bit too far for me. She asked if I could help find someone else who might be able to do it. Let me know if you're in the area and interested - email me at...

    What's wrong with Christmas?

    I understand your frustration with those who wish a generic "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas", but one sentence in your email really stood out to me: Do you really think this is a "Christian country"? I mean, I agree, most of this country's founders were Christian, however, they...

    HWC Products for October '12?

    They really need to think outside the Pink Box on this!! The bags are awful (had them, they ripped!) and the gloves were even worse (the cute white/dotted part ripped right off!!). The scrub brush is probably my favorite of all 3, but I did have mine fall apart (handle came off), hubby Gorilla...

    Iso: Chillane server/cool n serve carrier

    It was actually called "Chillzanne" and it was discontinued back in 2004, I think. It is pretty rare to find one anymore, and the company that used to make them doesn't even seem to exist anymore (Sierra Housewares) to order replacements from. eBay or Amazon are probably her only options.

    Replacement parts

    Unfortunately, this has changed since March 1st - all replacement parts orders are charged S&H and tax now. So bummed!!

    Urgent Gift certificates?

    I never sold the old gift certificates, I always offered my own. I usually included them in silent auction baskets for schools/church fundraisers, but it was a way to ensure they actually bought something from you. I will not miss GCs at all.

    LEAST favorite products?

    Sounds similar to the Pineapple Wedger to me. I am looking forward to trying this out! I'm actually excited about the new SA dishes, since this is what I have wanted all along. I never really "loved" the dots, but the dishes were nice so I got them. Now that my husband has broken several of...

    Anyone have any 2012 Calendars left to sell?

    I am willing to purchase 10 - 30 of these, if anyone has any left. Let me know. Thanks! [email protected]

    Has anybody received their turkeys?

    I submitted my show on 11/12, and still have not received my certificate. I'm feeding 10 people on Thursday and need that certificate! I won't be home for Christmas, so I won't have any use for it if I don't receive it tomorrow (I want to brine it on Wed.) - YIKES! Talk about cutting it close!! :(

    Booking troubles

    Men usually buy more from me than women. Tell them they'll probably have a big show! Men usually buy knives and cookware from me (and BBQ stuff), which are the higher priced items. If the men he knows like to cook, love to cook, or hate to cook, then they'll enjoy PC, because we make it easy for...

    Past Host Discount Question

    Try it anyway, it may go through. I've done the same thing sometimes. As long as the host has a PHD it should go through.

    Mary Kay presentation at my show yesterday

    Once another direct seller is presenting at the show, it is now a "Vendor Event", not a Pampered Chef Cooking Show. I only do "Vendor Events" with people I know who invite TONS of people (i.e., over 100!) and there are several vendors in attendance all inviting their preferred customers. I then...

    Carry Less... Sell More

    A lot of people just carry what comes in the new consultant kit and a few other pieces needed for the recipe they're preparing. And, if someone asks at a show if you have something, just tell them you'll be glad to bring it to their house for their party!

    P3 Ipad and Website

    You can't - I've tried. It's because of what Noora said above - Flash is not enabled on an iPad, and you need Flash in order to get to the "Order Products" section of our PWS. So, until they create an app for P3 for iPhone/iPad, we're out of luck. Incidentally, I did receive a survey a couple...

    New Specials format

    Kathleen - I'm sorry my post offended you so much and obviously I hit a nerve. That was not my intent. I just personally think that the effort that you put forth on the fliers could be better spent on other business-building activities, that's all. I wasn't trying to hurt your feelings. If you...

    December Host/Guest Specials are posted!

    Did anyone else notice that you can purchase the new black apron on Supply Order now, too? And, the Holiday Mini Catalogs are available now, as well. Putting in my supply order as I type!! ;)

    New Specials format

    Kathleen, I wouldn't mess with HO's pdfs if I were you. We should all just use what HO provides to us and stop wasting time creating our own fliers. That time can be better spent on the phone with customers, hosts, potential recruits and team members. HO makes great fliers, and they also give us...

    I am sending out prayers to everyone out on the east coast as Irene

    Re: Irene PA got hit pretty hard, too, in the Philly area. My family made it through fine, no power outage or flooding, just some branches in the yard. But several neighbors had flooded basements and all of the local rivers, creeks and streams are flooding and causing road closures all over...

    Earthquake in DC?

    Felt it here in SE PA. I was on the 2nd floor of my building at work and thought someone was shaking the cubicles! (I was a little annoyed!). Then I realized what happened and went to see our building evacuation officer, since I'm on the evacuation team. Several of our buildings were evacuated...

    Sample Package groups

    I just realized we can order the new pantry items on Supply Order - so for those of you who want the pantry items only, you can just order them via Supply. I forgot I did the same thing last season!

    Sample Package groups

    There is no way I am buying any of these sample packages - I have so much stoneware already that I'm giving some stones to my sister-in-law!! I like the taupe, but own all of the cranberry, and since the cranberry matches my kitchen, I will not be replacing with taupe. I already replaced the...

    Please pray from my cousins son

    Oh, no, Jennie, that's awful! I'm so sorry for your family's tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. So sorry!!

    Check out Merrill...

    Isn't there already a necklace that you get when you hit $15,000 in sales? I know it used to be a whisk, b/c I made them into earrings. I wish I could get the new chef hat necklace somehow to have a matching set!

    The chef hat earrings are adorable!

    Do you accept checks?

    I am thinking of only accepting credit or debit cards, as cash and checks are an inconvenience for me (who has time to run to the bank and deposit/cash checks!?!), plus, it delays the time it takes for them to get their products. If I get a debit or credit card, it usually goes right through...
